Abstract
Postdisaster survival and rescue research is a small component of the Bureau of Mines health and safety research program. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the Bureau's postdisaster research program and to recommend future efforts in this area. A definition of a disaster survival and rescue system that provides a frame of reference for the evaluation of research accomplishments and the assessment of future needs was developed and the essential components of a research and development program in the postdisaster area was outlined. It was found that to develop a more effective capability for postdisaster survival and rescue, the need for a systems approach to preparing for disaster response and special considerations that apply to government-sponsored research and development leading to the design of escape, survival, and rescue equipment must be considered.
